On the 2nd Day of Chrismas - Custom Inkpad

my true love sent to me ....

another Tim tag and what a beauty it was too, however, mine looks nothing like Tim's.

I hit a wall with this one, the technique needed Cut & Dry felt, which I didn't have and distress reinkers which I only have a couple of. Sue (Playing with Paper) who is a fountain of knowledge said you can acheive a similar result with dried up baby wipes and felt tip pens or ink daubers. Well my attempt was a disaster, I didn't have the right style stamp or reinker colours and it was just a splodged mess.

So I improvised, using the aforementioned ink daubers and distress inks in tumbled glass and stormy sky I stamped a snowflake design all around my tag and then embossed with clear ep, then coloured my backround with weathered wood and more stormy sky. The design got a bit lost in the background so I went over it with clear on clear ink and ep. The topper was made using the same colours and stamp. Finnished with a sentiment and snowflake.

Well it's nice to be different anyway and I'm loving these big tags.

Looking forward to tomorrow's challenge.

Thanks for looking.
